Document Description
The project will repair existing weirs, expand and modify existing weirs, and install 6 new weirs at the Iron Canyon Fish Ladder (Fish Ladder) on Big Chico Creek in Bidwell Park, Chico, California. The Fish Ladder was constructed in the mid 1950s to provide spring run salmon passage during low to moderate flows, so that the fish can reach holding and spawning habitat upstream. The ladder has suffered damaged and now does not function as designed. The United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) developed final designs and specifications (pending permit and funding agency conditions) and has provided funding to the California State University, Chico Research Foundation to complete environmental review, obtain permits and develop construction funding. The Foundation is working with the City of Chico, the Big Chico Creek Watershed Alliance, the CA Department of Fish and Game, and the CA Department of Water Resources to complete these tasks.
